Aga Khan University Hospital (AKUH) has spread its reach across Nairobi, Machakos, Kajiado and Laikipia counties with the opening of new medical centres offering outpatient clinics with laboratory, pharmacy services and diagnostic imaging services.

In addition, the hospital has expanded the Donholm Medical Centre to include X-ray, ultrasound, pharmacy, antenatal and well baby clinics. The introduction of gynaecology, antenatal, family planning and well baby clinics on Mondays and Nutrition every Tuesdays between 8.00 a.m. and 3.00 p.m. at the Capital Centre will benefit residents living along Mombasa Road.

Machakos County will be served by a clinic in Athi River at the Martinice Villa, Athi River Town and another in Syokimau at Soham Oils Petrol Station along Mombasa Road while Kajiado people can access the Hospital’s services from the first floor of Hiwi Court building along the Ngong-Kiserian road in Kajiado. In Laikipia there is a Nanyuki Medical Centre on the first floor of Silver Plaza, next to Nakumatt, Kenyatta Highway. Patients in Nyahururu are able to visit the Medical Centre on the ground floor of GF Plaza, Kenyatta Avenue.

A highly skilled team of doctors, registered nurses and laboratory technologists and radiographers collaborate to provide compassionate, personalised outpatient care at all the centres. Jean Thairu, the AKUH Outreach Services Manager, said, “There are on-site laboratories with the capacity to handle routine and specialised tests. Results are delivered on time and in a confidential manner to the patients, or their doctors. In addition there are well stocked pharmacies with a wide range of affordable medications.”

 “We have also established laboratory collection centres which gather specimens and samples for dispatch to the Aga Khan University Hospital’s main laboratory. These collection facilities are run by highly trained phlebotomists and are located at Amal Plaza in Eastleigh and the Thika Diagnostic Centre in Thika.

Aga Khan University Hospital is a private, not-for-profit teaching and referral institution that provides secondary and tertiary level health care services, with a multidisciplinary, evidence based approach to care and treatment. AKUH operates under the core principles of Quality, Impact, Relevance and Access.
